Man On The Corner
See the lonely man there on the corner
What he's waiting for I don't know
But he waits everyday now
He's just waiting for something to show

And nobody knows him
And nobody cares
'Cause there's no hiding place
There's no hiding place for you

Looking everywhere at no one
He sees everything and nothing at all, oh
When he shouts nobody listens
Where he leads no one will go, oh

He's a lonely man there on the corner
What he's waiting for I don't know
But he waits everyday now
And he's just waiting for something to show, oh

Nobody knows him
And nobody cares
'Cause there's no hiding place
There's no hiding place for you and me

Are we just like all the rest?
We're looking too hard for something he's got
Or moving too fast to rest
But like a monkey on your back you need it
But do you love it enough to leave it, ah?

Just like the lonely man there on the corner
What he's waiting for I don't know, oh
But he waits every day now
He's just waiting for that something to show, oh

Who's the lonely man there on the corner?
What he's waiting for I don't know
But he's there every day now
And he's just waiting for something to show, oh

Who's the lonely man there on the corner?
What he's waiting for I don't know
Oh, but he waits every day now
He's just waiting for that something to show
